About This Book

Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, nearly 120,000 Americans were imprisoned by the U.S. government, only because they were of Japanese ancestry. Many had gone to great lengths to demonstrate their loyalty to the U.S. Here is a chronicle of their internment, focusing on the experiences of one high school student, Shi Nomura.
